Two Corner Clash for Sungai Limau By-Elections


SHAH ALAM, 23 Oct: The Sungai Limau State Legislative Assembly (DUN) By-Election will witness a straight fight between PAS candidate, Mohd Azam Abd Samad and BN candidate, Dr Ahmad Sohaimi Lazim.

The announcement was made by the By-Election Management Officer, Abdul Rashid Othman at the nomination centre in Dato’ Madi Hall in Yan, Kedah, this morning.

The Sungai Limau DUN which is under the Jerai Parliament has 27,287 registered voters, with 40 percent of them being young voters, and the Election Commission (EC) has set 4 November as the polling day.

Mohd Azam in a Harakah Daily report said that he is ready to take on the responsibility entrusted by the party and will continue the legacy left by the former Assemblyman of the area, the late Tan Sri Azizan Abd Razak.

He said the responsibility is heavy and is large enough to continue PAS victory for five term in the said constituency.

“I am overwhelmed to be entrusted by the party leadership to represent PAS in the By-Elections this time.

“This is a heavy responsibility for me, especially to maintain the victory obtained by PAS for five terms,” he said.

Earlier, the PAS President, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang led a procession with the top leadership of Pakatan Rakyat, which included the Kedah PAS Commissioner Datuk Mahfuz Omar, the Deputy President of PKR Mohd Azmin Ali and the Member of Parliament for Sungai Petani, Datuk Johari Abdul.

The Sungai Limau By-Election is being carried out following Azizan’s death due to heart disease and diabetes on 26 September.
